To The High School Teacher Who Was Always There

Thank you for always lending an ear when I really needed to be heard.

To The High School Teacher Who Was Always There

I'm going to be perfectly honest. There isn't too much that I miss from high school. In the nearly two years since graduation, much of my high school life has faded into distant memory. While I'm glad to have moved on from that part of my life, there are a few people and memories from high school that I'll likely never forget. And that's where this story begins.

I think that everyone has at least one teacher from their high school life that they can look back to and say for sure that they left an impact on their life. To the teacher in my life that was that teacher, I want to say thank you.

Thank you for always taking the time to listen. There were mornings where I just needed to be heard and afternoons where I was just burnt out. No matter what the instance, I could always count on your support and advice to get me through the day. Whatever struggle I would be enduring, your kind and supportive words would give me the momentum I needed to work my way to the end.

Thank you for opening your classroom when I needed to step away from the craziness of the school. Every free period and early morning through my last year and a half, I knew I could step into your room when I wanted a break from the madness.

Thank you for the long, meaningful discussions that could have spanned several hours if we'd had the time. Everything from academic struggles to drama with friends, to helping me with the future, you were always there. I appreciate the extra effort you always took to give me feedback.

Thank you for always making me laugh. Whether it was intentional or not, you always managed to have the perfect response when I needed to laugh a little. Laughter is the best medicine, and I always felt better after laughing and decompressing for a moment.

Finally, thank you for all the amazing memories that I've taken with me since I left. All the laughs, memories, grades, and jokes that were made in your classroom still resonate with me after all this time. I haven't forgotten the support you gave me in high school, and I never will. I miss you.

From the college student that will never forget, thanks so much. You made high school a better place.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
